it’s so overly sweet it’s almost hard to enjoy. I’m quite surprised...................

750 ml. bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown with a nice tan head. Aroma of caramel, dark fruit, brown sugar, and alcohol. Taste is caramel, sweet malt, dark fruit, toffee, brown sugar, and alcohol. Very sweet, too much so for me.

This is really just a mess. It’s cloudy brown and headless aside from a few stray bubbles. It’s pretty mild in the nose, slightly fruity w/ a touch of coconut. This is thick and sticky sweet w/ a sort of pretzel-like malt character and not much else aside from raisins and some tobacco-ish oxidized malt. I am not sure why someone would want to drink this.

Ataraxia (537) - California, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Semi translucent mahogany color, off white lacing. Grape, brown sugar, oak, a little cognac, dried dark fruit, and malt. Very sugary. Full bodied but not heavy, mild carb, smooth, and boozy. Long sweet finish.

Bottle. Deep burgundy hue, burnt orange at the edges, with a thin tan head. Aroma has impressive complexity for a SMaSH beer. Caramel, toffee, overripe oranges, vanilla, toasted coconut, brown sugar, marshmallow. Flavor is fairly sweet but displays much of the same notes as the nose, along with maple syrup and more pronounced orange peel and toasted oak. Some noticeable citrusy hops as well. Creamy medium-full body; tingly carbonation. Alcohol is noticeable, but definitely less noticeable than 17 percent. Very tasty stuff.

suprchunk (2994) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Hazy dark chocolate pour. Big tan head in one glass. No head in the other I shared with the wife. Vanilla aroma with dates and fig. Creamy caramel taste with some heat. Nice and malty.

dfroms (477) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear reddish amber, small head. Aroma is sweet caramel, brandy, almonds, vanilla, plum, sherry. Taste is syrupy burnt sugar and jammy plums with sweet cherry, milk chocolate, liquid toffee. Thick and syrupy. Solid.

4.7
craftbeerdesign (2254) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 10, 2015
Shared bottle. This is one damn fine beer. Pours a dark brown with a small head. Big aromas - cognac, caramel, dark fruits, light oak. Full body with caramel notes and dark fruits. Sweet smooth finish. The 17% is hidden so well.

GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 4, 2015
[ Bottle ][ 750ml ][ Texas Liquor Carlsbad ][ $35 ][ Tasting Snifter ][ 2.28.15 ]
>> Pours tepid deep amber with red highlights, weak head, ring of grayish foam remains. Nose is cherry Twizzlers, red candies. Taste is pure sugar, maple syrup, red cherry juice....pretty one note and cloying. I mean, had this next to Hill Farmstead Aaron and it was night and day. Big waste of money and very disappointing.

Bottle, Cabana de GT, brown pour, off white head, nose is boozy, taste is rich caramel, whiskey, wow
